Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Try using Audacity to convert those i-Tune MP3's to MP3 again & see if that helps.

You can use an alternate program like Tunebite, or you can move the song to a playlist and export that playlist to CD then import back into your computer as a MP3 file.

Most of the songs for this season I bought off Itunes w/o any problem. I used Itunes to convert them all to MP3.

I do have one problem, I bought a song for this up coming year, and the file is listed as corrupted by Itunes, and it still charged me. Having trouble getting anyone to answer. I will work more on this up coming week, as this problem started a week ago.

First and only problem I have had with them.

Ok, so I have downloaded Audacity and had to do the following.

I download the song with i-tunes, then create an MP3 version using i-tunes - this won't directly work with LOR so I have to use audacity to convert the MP3 version to a WAV and then LOR will work.

That's just crap. I might as well just steal the music for the hassle buying it is... LOL.

Anyway's thanks for the advice everyone. I'm glad I got it to work.

Whenever I've had problems with iTunes in the past, I've been able to contact support through http://www.apple.com/support/itunes. If you navigate to what seems to best describe your situation, you can maybe find an article that fits. Otherwise, I've had good luck with the Email & get a response within 48 hours options. I usually get a very quick response and I've had good luck with finding solutions this way. Sometimes they ask for the Order ID, which you can get through iTunes: "Store" Menu > View My Account > Purchase History. Hope this helps!

I just converted my iTunes file directly to a WAV on iTunes, and it worked fine for me. I've never used Audicity.

I couldn't figure out how. It gives you an option to convert to MP3 but not WAV

I know this matter was settled already but do you still have a Windows XP Professional computer? Sure makes a good converter.
